Strive for simplicity. Deliver sophistication.
MäkerFürnitüre is an experimental design studio located in New Year City. Our studio approaches design with a critical eye that challenges the typical vision of the built environment.
Recent works include simple chair for private spaces to functional art in institutional buildings - and encompass a variety of scales.
The Mäker Process
We design and make everything ourselves.
The design inspiration can come from an observation of what's missing from a client's current collection or a simple UI problem.
We'll make small scale models to test out an idea and then build out a full-size prototype to look at the scale and proportion.
We work through several rounds of production samples to refine and tweak - until we get to the final product.
Commonly asked tidbits.
How would you describe your design aesthetic?
Modern with a spirit of ingenuity and a tint of ridiculousness.
Where is your factory?
Everything we design and sell is made right in our studio in NYC. From concept to execution - nothing is outsourced.
How to you work with clients?
We favor the immediacy of drawing and the tactility of a prototype over modeling on computers. And our clients benefit from the visceral reaction of seeing a small scale model or full size prototype.
